The best part of the new AirPods is their wireless charging ability. Therefore, if you want to buy a charger for Apple's newest wireless earphones, go with a wireless charger that takes full advantages of its major upgrade. Our favorite wireless charger is the Anker Ultra Slim Wireless Charger.
With is slim and flat design, you can drop your AirPods on it and not worry about the contact points aligning properly. Just drop them in the middle where the Anker logo lives and they'll begin charging with needing to plug in any wires.
